    Decorated Windows

    by Kathrin_E Written Nov 25, 2014

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The sense of embellishment continues at the windows. Even simple cellar windows are happily decorated to look pretty. The decoration is on the outside so passers-by can enjoy it. In late autumn there were autumn-themed ornaments, often using natural materials like fruit, pumpkins, chestnuts, together with figures made from ceramics or wood, and of course flower pots.

    „Sitting on me porch“

    by Kathrin_E Written Nov 25, 2014

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    A beautiful spot must be enjoyed – the porch gardens often have a place to sit where the owner/s rest, people-watch, chat with the neighbours among their flower pots and decorations. If there is space in the front yard there might be a table with chairs. Narrow spots have a just a small bench that seats one or two. Some have fantastic self-made constructions like the one in photo 1.

    Note that these are considered part of private ground and the owners will not appreciate passers-by to use them.

    Front Yards and Porches

    by Kathrin_E Written Nov 25, 2014

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Gardening is popular and the Wimpfeners have a sense for embellishment of their houses and their town. If there is no patch of open soil by the house, plant pots are placed in the front yard, around the porch or the front door, on the stairs and windowsills wherever there is space. Even in November this looked pretty. In spring and summer when all the flowers are in full bloom this must be an abundance of beauty. Photographers, this is an excellent topic for your personal series of Bad Wimpfen details.

    Private Gardens

    by Kathrin_E Written Nov 25, 2014

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The hilly old town looks narrow and densely built, but between the houses there is room for little gardens. Many of them are located on terraces due to the topography. These are all private, hence off bounds to visitors. Looking over the fence is permitted, though…

    People plant flowers, vegetables, kitchen herbs, some even have a fruit tree and /or bushes. In former times they were important as greengrocery supplies, nowadays they are more for pleasure, and a little home-grown fresh addition to the family’s cuisine.

    Bring your own cup or buy one.

    by christine.j Written Dec 7, 2006

    Usually, when you go to a Christmas market in Germany and get a glass of Gluehwein, you pay a deposit for the cup, which you'll get back when you return the cup. In Bad Wimpfen, the market is held on the small and narrow streets and on the market square. It is too narrow to have extra waterpipes laid out to the stalls to do the dishes. So the vendors cannot clean the cups. That's the reason why in Bad Wimpfen you have to buy the cup when you order your Gluehwein of Feuerzangenbowle. You can get it refilled without any problem. You can also bring your own cup from home and have it filled.
